my Windows start menu button was working (to launch the start menu on the screen) but this morning it stopped working after I shut it down from the sleep mode. I have tried everything that is in this video on YouTube. But nothing from that video is working. How do I fix this?

    Perform a sfc scan on the computer to check if there are any corruptions on the computer. Please follow the below link to perform a sfc scan on the computer.

    Does the Windows key on your Keyboard launch the start menu? or are both the screen button and the keyboard button not working?

    A few seconds ago my laptop just made very quick buzz sound. I am don't know what that sound is supposed to mean but I gave windows key another try to see if it would launch the windows start menu and it worked. So something on this computer is either making it short out that one window key or something. What would be the cause of this strange thing?

    Frankly I have know idea but it is unlikely to be something shorting out. Sometimes Windows will throw a tantrum and then decide to behave. As for the sound, the system can do that on occasion and it is transmitted over the speakers. My advice is to put it down to experience and carry on but monitor the situation for anything else unusual

    I think there was a software delay from an application that I installed yesterday but then windows installed software that made the software that I installed obsolete.
